Greenock’s Beacon Arts Centre takes shape
August 1 2012
Designed by LDN Architects, with Buro Happold as structural engineer, the Beacon Arts Centre is being funded by Inverclyde Council and the National Lottery.
It is sited on the historic East India Harbour, adjacent to the Custom House, and is intended to give fresh impetus to a waterfront cut off from the town centre by a busy dual carriageway.
When finished it will accommodate a 500 seat auditorium, 130 seat studio theatre, three rehearsal rooms a restaurant and bar.
The £7.8m scheme is scheduled to complete this summer.
